Emu oil is derived from a large, flightless bird native to Australia.  While emu oil (Dromaius novaehollandiae) had been known to the aboriginal people of the Australian Outback for centuries as a treatment for many ailments, the benefits of emu oil was largely unknown in the West until 2001 when Dr. Robert Nicolosi, Professor and Director of the Center for Health & Disease Research at the University of Massachusetts – Lowell, released results of ongoing research in relation to emu oil.


After harvesting the emu, the fat is rendered and then refined to remove impurities.  The final result of this refinement process is the oil.  Emu oil is approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. Emu oil fatty acids are 50% Oleic fatty acid (Omega-9), 15 – 20% linoleic fatty acid (Omega-6), and 1 – 2% linolenic fatty acid (Omega-3).


LB Processors, LLC. uses a custom designed all-natural process to refine the oil. Since emu oil is low on soaps (formed by free fatty acids), chemicals are not required.  Our process ensures a natural, stable, and odorless finished product that can be utilized in many applications in the OTC, dietary supplement, and cosmetic industries.
